Neurological Rehabilitation Research Center

The University of Maryland Rehabilitation Research Center, directed by Dr. Peter Gorman, is a collaborative effort between the University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute, the University of Maryland School of Medicine, and the VA Maryland Healthcare System. It has been generously supported by seed money from the Kernan Endowment Board.

The Center's specialized and advanced research programs have been developed in stroke and spinal cord injury rehabilitation, and future work in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation is under development.

Focus for much of the work has been in exercise and robotic rehab for people with various neurological conditions. Additional faculty member interests are behavioral neurology and the functional basis for neurological recovery.
